Professor Valentina Dmitrievna Moskalenko about the book by I. A. Solovieva:

I work with people who are addicted or codependent. More often, and I confess more willingly, with codependent clients. These are relatives, spouses or close friends of addicted patients. So that's it. Now the client has gone literate, well-read on this issue. And quite often clients ask me: "What else should I read about my problem?"

I am very glad that now I can, among others, recommend to them the book by Irina Solovieva. Why? First, the problem is well and comprehensively covered from various theoretical points of view. There are many approaches and explanations of the causes and manifestations of addictions in the world. Codependency also belongs to addictions, although these people live soberly. The author managed to consider almost all the approaches, to present them clearly and clearly. Therefore, I am sure the interested reader will get a comprehensive understanding of what is important in the emergence of dependencies and how to understand the phenomenon when it has already been formed. Understanding pathology is essential for recovery.

Of course, it is very gratifying that the author described well what is happening in the families of addicted patients. I am convinced that it is almost in vain to treat one patient and not work with his family. Involving at least one family member in therapy increases the effectiveness of treatment for an individual patient. Family members of the sick person may be interested in the question of what to do to keep the next generation in the family healthy. And about this, that is, about prevention, is written in the book.

Practical exercises are of particular value. They can be easily used by professionals with some training in body-oriented psychotherapy. Any reader can try these exercises. There will be no harm. But it's more useful if you work with a specialist.

Thus, Irina Solovieva presented the world with another good, scientific, practically useful and fascinating book. Read, people, health!
